Helped deliver the workshop on Design Thinking: from Ideas to Innovation. The venue was in Colombo, Sri Lanka to 30 IT top management and professionals in July 2017. After the workshop, I was part of a panel on Design Thinking.
I helped prepare the Workshop on Electronic Prototyping with Arduino as part of the Introduction to Design Course (Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore). Together with the Prof. Suranga Nanayakkara, we delivered the workshop to over 100 students.
For the course Tangible Interaction 2015/2016 (Interaction Design Masters Program,
Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden), I supervised a project proposing an exciting topic (inductive charging) that was chosen by one group composed of five Interaction Design Masters students. The full project description and concept video are here and their video:
For the course Tangible Interaction 2014/2015 (Interaction Design Masters Program,
Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden), together with the post-doc Ayça Ünlüer, we proposed two course projects for ten Interaction Design Masters students. One group chose the project with prototyping deformable displays and already published at a student conference in Interaction Design the Embrace: Emotion Sharing Bracelet.
Together with Prof. Morten Fjeld, we advised two Software Engineering Masters Students, who were interns at the company: Semiconductor Energy Laboratory Ltd, Japan with the thesis topic of developing an gesture input framework for in-cell optical touchscreens that get touch points by detecting reflected light. I guided and advised them, especially for the user evaluation part of the thesis. Their Masters thesis can be downloaded here.
During summer I advised Mickaël Fourgeaud during his internship. We worked on two projects that were published, one involving real-time reconstruction and the other project was an evaluation of a prototype for map navigation using a wearable mid-air display.
Together with Prof. Morten Fjeld, we supervised two MSc. students in Interaction Design, Chalmers, with the topic of public displays with input based on gestures and motion parallax.
Together Stig Nielsen, PhD student at Architecture Dept., we proposed and guided a course project for the Tangible Interaction 2013/2014 (Interaction Design Masters Program, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden), course for six MSc. students in Interaction Design.
The project involved designing and cutting styrofoam blocks which were growing into an organic structure under guidance of light projected from the top. The project was evaluated at the Tangible and Embodied Interaction 2014 conference and published at alt.CHI 2015.
